    Mr. Martin is by far the most liberal candidate in the Democratic Primary. He supports giving tax payer funded benefits to illegal aliens, opposed the partial birth abortion ban when he was in the State House, and worked against Rep. Earl Ehrhart who was trying to protect the boyscout’s right to assemble.

    Compared to him, Snuggles doesn’t look so bad.

  2. griftdrift says:

    Wow.

    He supports the government equally enforcing a certain type of contract for all people.

    Shocking.

    Can we have some more preaching about Republicans only wanting to use goverment when its appropriate? It’s friday. I need a laugh.

  3. GeorgiaValues says:

    I think not Indy. Saxby has pushed for border security and enforcement all along, unlike Mr. Martin who calls for government benefits for illegal aliens.

    You say that a “LOT of loyal Republicans” are still bitter over Saxby’s attempt to deal with the problem…Saxby’s record is clear vs. Pro-Illegal Alien Jim Martin…so what’s your point?

  4. Carpe Forem says:

    BOOOOOOOOOOO!

    That’s the sound you heard at last years GOP Convention when “Amnesty Saxby, BFF with Ted Kennedy, Chambliss got on stage to give his speech.

    He’s never met a spending bill he didn’t support or ever missed an oppertunity to grow the size and scope of the Federal government.

    There is nothing conservative about him… consistant, but not conservative.

  5. Jace Walden says:

    Saxby Chambliss and Johnny “$15,o00 bailout checks for my Real Estate Buddies” Isakson are two of the biggest big-government Republicans in Washington.

    Not surprised ONE BIT that they represent Georgia.

  6. GAR says:

    Values has it right. Chambliss has righted himself and deserves to coast to re-election.

    I love how Jim Martin has become the Democrats great hope. I mean, I guess he’s not as bad as Franklin Knight, but this guy won’t make it far.

    BS is dead on.

    Isakson and Chambliss are the biggest BIG GOVERNMENT senators Georgia has ever had.

  8. GAR says:

    Thanks Jace. If there was an award for most self-righteous poster you’d be at least one of the nominees.

    The fact is that Chambliss and Isakson matter on the big issues. The bills that Carpe posted had near unanimous support anyways so whoever your “perfect” senator is most likely voted for them also.

    Get off your high horse you fake.

  9. Carpe Forem says:

    The bills that Carpe posted had near unanimous support

    That’s the point; very little difference between Dems and BIG GOV neocons.

    (there’s more)

    Does the blind man now see!

    No, he’s not perfect, but Rep. Paul Broun is conservative.

  10. Carpe Forem says:

    Quit giving these guys a pass simply because they have an R beside their name. We need people in DC that have the integrity and fortitude to do what’s right and not what’s popular.

  11. IndyInjun says:

    “The fact is that Chambliss and Isakson matter on the big issues. ”

    And on these “big issues” they stick a knife in the back of conservatism.

    I used to have a tiny bit more respect for Isakson, but that $15,000 tax credit lunacy two weeks ago swept it away.

    These two have done more damage to the average Georgian than any brace of senators in history.

  12. Jace Walden says:

    GAR,

    Your boys Chambliss and Isakson are two of the biggest, most obvious phonies (as “conservatives”) to ever disgrace the chamber of the U.S. Capitol Building.
